CES 2014, Corsair has announced an extension to its AX series power supply line up with the launch of AX1500i digital power supply. Corsair AX1500i does not stop at 80+ Platinum numbers in-fact it meets the current draft for ATX 115 Volt 80 PLUS Titanium for consumer PSUs. It’s a fully-modular power supply with plenty of connectors and supports 4-way GPU configurations.
Corsair AX1500i Power Supply
Corsair AX1500i is a digital power supply with Corsair Link support. It delivers stable 1500 watts of power at an astonishing 94% efficiency. The circuitry of the PSU is controlled by DSP which allows extremely stable voltages on all the rails along with very low ripple and noise. It comes with 8 PCIe power connectors for support up to 4 GPUs. Higher efficiency results in reduced heat which allows the AX1500i to operate at zero RPM fan mode till the load reaches 450W. The fan is a custom-designed fluid-dynamic ball bearing for low noise operation. The 140 mm fan allows the PSU to run quietly and well under respectable temperature even at 1500W load.
“When we released the AX1200i, the world’s first digital ATX PSU, we defined the new standard for PSU performance, efficiency, and customization,” said Aaron Neal, product manager of PSUs at Corsair. “Now with the AX1500i’s evolved digital architecture we’ve raised the bar again, creating the most efficient and technically advanced PSU available for the uncompromising PC enthusiast.”
Corsair Link features real-time monitoring of temperature, current draw, power efficiency as well as adjusting the speed of the 140 mm fan. Users can also adjust the over current protection points on different rails depending on what mode they are using – multi-rail +12v or single +12v mode.
